I do not want to see Nick with Chelsea, but I also do not want him to reunite with Sharon for the millionth time. Why don’t they mix it up a little? Stop with the repeat cycle and try Hillary out with Nick? Ravi should be romantically linked to Mariah, not Ashely–those two do not fit. Billy and Victoria also need to stop with the repeat cycle and find love else where.

Addison, I agree with what you wrote about Nick and Chelsea-boring and zero chemistry. Ravi and Mariah, ugh, that would give Mariah even more air-time and I find the actress/character to be really obnoxious. I love Ashley and agree that she has zero chemistry with Ravi-just ridiculous that someone like Ashley would be so protective of her employee. I could do without the train wreck of Billy’s life and Victoria-the actress has no chemistry with anyone, IMO & seriously, does she need to continue to remind two grown men that she is “the boss.” Give me a break.

I love that commercial. Nice to see the network letting viewers know that there are still stars to watch during the day. Maybe not as big as Denzel or Julia but they’re still big names worth seeing every day.

I do not understand why the ratings are down for Y&R. I do not fast forward through any of Y&R and today’s show (2/14-17) was pitch perfect. I loved Ashely thinking back about her father which was served up to us with flashbacks. Jack is back to acting like ole smiling Jack and that’s good to see. I have to amend my earlier post in which I said that I didn’t think Ashely and Rave fit. Today, those two won me over–Ravi is incredibly sweet and Ashely could use a little of that in her life right now. I also… Read more »

Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
